  2. Resistance Reborn takes place days after the events of Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi, which are set directly after Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens. Since Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the events of The Force Awakens to 34 ABY, the events of The Last Jedi and Resistance Reborn must take place around the same year, which also includes Wedge Antilles and Norra Wexley's time on Akiva.
